perspectives

In contrast to some other places, the Tallahassee area isn’t seeing widespread opioid addiction.  But to keep that relatively good situation from getting worse, a coalition of groups has joined in a well-coordinated preventive initiative.  To discuss that effort: Ellen Piekalkiewicz with the Florida State University College of Social Work; Captain Ed Cook, Criminal Investigations and Homeland Security Division supervisor with the Leon County Sheriff’s Department; Jordan Cowart with DISC Village; and Mike Watkins from Big Bend Community Based Care.
